Jomtien Golf with the IPGCMonday, June 15, Phoenix – StablefordIt was the Mountain and Ocean nines again as the Lakes course is totally under renovation, we could not believe the amount of work going on with new greens and fairways on all holes being constructed.There were two divisions out as always at this time of the year and the cut was set at 8-17 and 19+ in division 2. It was a pleasant day here with the temperature not to overpowering as of late and the course was in good condition.Colin Phillips.
